Philips manuals

Most VCR's have manual tracking. Generally it will use a set of keys on the remote used by another function. Often the channel up down keys! This will also apply to the controls on the video itself.

Bad tracking is also caused by dirt one the heads or tape path. So clean the machine first before adjusting the tracking.

External Tuner Device for VCR/DVD player

Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

Problem with philips magnavox vcr


Most Philips/Magnavox VCR uses "PL" to indicate that the unit is on Parental Lock. Push and hold the power button on the remote control and wait for the unit to power up. This should be within 7 seconds.

Additionally, most (but not all) Philips/Magnavox VCRs are sub-contracted to Funai. Pls try here for Funai downloads of user's manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Calmly and relaxed, read the operator's manual to realize the exact proceedure or one-day, multi-time-setting. Upon reading the context will indicate the component's ability and weather the programing is to be direct component button pressing or through the remote control.
